What will we say about the Geography of Australia in our exposition?

We will start saying that Australia’s landmass of 7,617,930 square kilometres is on the Indo-Australian Plate. Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is separated from Asia by the Arafura and Timor seas, with the Coral Sea lying off the Queensland coast, and the Tasman Sea lying between Australia and New Zealand. The world’s smallest continent and sixth largest country by total area. Austria –owing to its size and isolation- is often dubbed the “island continent”, and is sometimes considered the world’s largest island.
